Who was the fellow who argued for a flat earth? I loved that guy.

HopefulFaithful?
Not, not him. Is he a flat earther too? There can't possibly be two of them here, that would just be too crazy!

I think he was the guy who believed that electricity was evil. I don't think he was a flat earther though.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Those beliefs are NOT representative of the OBs.
"But we must live in the world, having peace in our soul. We must live amidst strangers; we must suffer, struggle, and firmly believe. We must seek our consolation in prayer and not doubt the love and compassion of God. He is above everyone and everything."

This user posts here but probably shouldn't.

I remember learning in Paris that Brits don't mean the same when they say "pissed off."

They do; the other meaning has no 'off' clause. ;)

'Piss off' can mean the same as 'sod off' as in 'piss off, mate', right? If that's so "I pissed off" is good English as well.

Yes.

In British and some other forms of English, pissed (without the "off") means drunk.
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

I've been on this board for 9 1/2 years and I know lots of people come and go.  But I wish a few people would still post here either because I thought their posts were illuminating or just fun.  I don't know where these people are, but here are a few I miss:

OzGeorge--Always good.  Great theological insights.


Heorhij--Mr. Ukraine.  Disagreed with him a lot.
Greek is Christian (GiC)--our resident mathematician and agnostic/atheist?
Matthew777--our JamesR before JamesR
Shiny--do I really need to say anything?

Whom do you miss?

I really miss: Heorhij--Mr. Ukraine.  He lived in the southeran USA and had some really interesting things to say about Americans from a new and unusual persepctive.

You all have used that p word enough. On this forum, it's actually considered a profanity and therefore not to be used outside the Private Forum.
